Albany, Dougherty County prep for snow

Kids get day off due to snow

Emergency management and public works crews have been waiting for flakes to fall. The city and county employees say Friday's early morning precipitation isn't a concern, it's the ice in the overnight hours that could do some damage.

Dougherty County public works say they will bring in a relief staff this evening to monitor the roads and bridges. 11 local bridges will be covered with sand should ice and snow become a problem. City crews plan to do the same thing, but they say the overnight hours will be a bigger concern. Authorities are warning drivers to slow down. Fire crews say they have a steady staff on call all day should road accidents become a problem.
